Joshua Levkowitz is immersing himself in Syrian communities living in Syria’s neighboring countries. He’s examining issues related to migration, identity and threats to security, including the degree to which Syrians are able to assimilate or integrate, the perception and effects the diaspora is having on host societies, and networks between Syrian migrants and Syria. Before his fellowship, Joshua was living in the northern Iraqi city of Erbil as a senior program officer on reconciliation with United States Institute of Peace. He has a Masters degree in international relations and international economics with a concentration in conflict management from Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies.
